Under A Rock with Tig Notaro: Debby Ryan


Although she ‘s a famous comedian herself, Tig Notaro has a very special and unique ability: she doesn ‘t recognize celebrities. Whether they ‘re a professional athlete, a famous sportscaster, or an award-winning actor, for Tig… well… it ‘s just not ringing a bell.

Although she ‘s only 26, Debby Ryan ‘s impressive career already spans almost two decades. Unbelievably, she was already acting in professional theatres at age seven, and like so many of the world ‘s most iconic stars before her, she was brought into the worlds of television, film, and music after being discovered in a nationwide Disney talent search. From there, at the age of 15 in 2008 Debby was given a recurring role in the Disney Channel original series The Suite Life On Deck, and two feature films in 2010 ‘ What If ‘ which premiered in theaters, and 16 Wishes, which was the highest watched cable program the day it premiered. From there, she starred in her own Disney Channel series, Jessie, from which her titular character was featured in a number of crossovers in other shows, the Netflix original series Insatiable, and the YouTube Red series Sing It!, as well as appearing in several other dramas like Private Practice, and comedies like Girl Meets World. Aside from film and television, she and her brother formed their own record label, Ryan River Studio, from which she released a number of singles, and Debby later formed the band The Never Ending. Her career with Disney also extended into charity work, having been involved in Disney ‘s Friends For Change, an initiative with the goal of environmental conservation through raising awareness and pledging funds to various environmental charities, and in 2012 Debby travelled to India to take part in Disney ‘s work with Free The Children. ‘

Since she was a child Debby Ryan has been all over televisions and theaters across the country and the world, as well as rocking out on stage and being hands-on in international philanthropic work. But apparently that ‘s not enough to get on Tig Notaro ‘s radar, and if she ‘s ever going to piece together who Debby Ryan is it ‘s going to take more than a few hints and help from Alexa, because Tig Notaro really does live under a rock. ‘
